M/S Estonia, towing the bow door - The official report indicated that the locks on the bow door had failed from the strain of the waves and the door had separated from the rest of the vessel, pulling ajar the ramp behind it. The bow visor and ramp had been torn off at points that would not trigger an "open" or "unlatched" warning on the bridge, as is the case in normal operation or failure of the latches. The bow visor was under-designed for the conditions Estonia was operating in.

The Estonia

No dia 24 de Setembro de 1.994, no  Mar Báltico, 852 pessoas morreram no naufrágio "MS ESTÔNIA".  Quando cruzava as águas agitadas, os passageiros começaram a ouvir barulhos metálicos e em poucos minutos as portas de carga quebraram, fazendo com que o deck inferior fosse inundado pouco antes dos quatro motores pararem completamente. Apenas os que estavam no deck superior conseguiram sobreviver.

The bow door of the MS Estonia opens for vehicle parking in preparation for its regular trip from Tallin, Estonia to Stockholm, Sweden. Near 01:00 the night of September 28, 1994, the bow door inexplicably opened during a tempest in the Baltic Sea, inverting the ship 90 degrees within 15 minutes. 852 people died, the worst peacetime disaster since the 'Titanic' in 1912.
